How Baker Street Dental takes the fear out of dentistry this December

shutterstock_588192785At Baker Street Dental, we understand that patients can be fearful of the dental chair, the drill or even our friendly dentists themselves. We understand that dental anxiety and dental phobia are common, and we have an experienced team of dental professionals on hand to make every patient’s experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.

How we can help nervous patients

We have a range of techniques available to help anxious dental patients, including:

  • Counselling
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Painless injections
  • Sedation dentistry
  • Anxiety-reducing medication

The methods we use are designed to help patients to feel calmer and more composed. We can treat general anxiety, as well as offering solutions that cater for patients with specific fears. If you’re anxious about having an injection, for example, we can offer treatment using The Wand. The Wand is an ideal option for patients who have had negative experiences with needles in the past. With The Wand, there’s no risk of the injection being painful and this helps patients to feel more relaxed.
In cases where patients are very nervous about having any kind of dental procedure, we may recommend treatment under sedation. Sedation is not the same as general anaesthetic, but it does make you feel drowsy and it will ensure that you don’t feel any pain.
If you’re interested in painless treatment and you’re looking for an experienced, compassionate dental team, why not get in touch with us today? We’ll make it our mission to help you overcome your fears and feel more relaxed.
